Winde addressed 2023’s SOPA at the Western Cape Provincial Parliament. In previous years, the opening of Parliament has been held in Mitchells Plain, Genadendal, and Velddrif.

The Premier is expected to give an update regarding progress made by his government in delivering on its priorities of reducing load shedding, growth for jobs, safety, dignity, and wellbeing. Winde will also lay out how the provincial government intends to build on its successes by ensuring residents' and businesses' needs are supported throughout 2024.

 “This year we will still have to face and address many of the same challenges we confronted in 2023. We must maintain our resolve and intensify our efforts to keep growing our economy, enabling more jobs to be created and making our communities safer, so that our residents can live in dignity. I look forward to working with Speaker Mitchell and members of the provincial parliament who play an important role in governing our province,’’ said Alan Winde, western Cape Premier.
